Caption Competition

While the 'Competition' is running I'm going to keep bumping it back up to the top post so people get to see it, so look for any newer posts below if you're visiting here.

For this competition all you have to do is supply a suitably humorous caption to the picture above in the comments page of this post, and the one judged to be the funniest wins.

THE PRIZE

Alan Lee, the Oscar-winning conceptual designer for the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, discusses his approach to depicting Tolkien’s imaginary world. The book presents more than 150 of Lee’s celebrated illustrations to show how his imagery for both the illustrated Lord of the Rings and the films progressed from concept to finished art. In addition, the book contains 20 full-color plates and numerous examples of the conceptual art produced for Peter Jackson’s film adaptation.The Lord of the Rings Sketchbook provides a wealth of background information and will be of interest to those who know and love Tolkien’s work, from books to films to DVDs, as well as to budding artists and illustrators interested in how to approach book illustration.
Hardcover; 192 pages
Publication Date: 10/19/2005
Illustrations: 150 b/w illustrations, 20 full color plates

Captain 3D and Professor Varkoz were landed a double whammy of disappointment when it was revealed that the suitcase full of cash they "found" was really just a pile of psychic paper and that the newfangled Sonic Electronic Xylophone ipod which they had intended to purchase with said "found" monies did not come programmed with the national anthem of Uranus!

"So, are you going to read me my fan mail?"

"Fan mail? No sir, these are all past due invoices for your interocitor parts. Also, there is a note from your wife wanting to know what you did with her measuring spoons."
